The Skyline College Administrative Medical Assisting (MEDA) Program began in fall 2015 and offers five certificates and an A.S. Degree, which are designed to meet cutting edge needs in the various areas of administrative medical assisting. The courses are available for registration and require no special application, offering a direct route for students who are interested in working within a medical environment. While students have been able to take part in the MEDA program and work towards their certificate or degree goal, the college has been waiting on the final approval from the State Chancellor’s office.
Just last week, Skyline College Counselor and Articulation Officer Jacqueline Escobar was able to announce the program approval to Ray Hernandez, Dean of the Science, Math, and Technology (SMT) Division. They are proud to announce that the following certificates and degree in the MEDA Program have been approved by the State Chancellor’s office for Skyline College:
- Administrative Medical Assisting, A.S. Degree
- Administrative Medical Assisting, Certificate of Achievement
- Medical Coding, Certificate of Achievement
- Medical Editing, Certificate of Achievement
- Medical Insurance Billing, Certificate of Achievement
- Medical Office Receptionist, Certificate of Achievement
Interested students may see the Counseling Office or the SMT Division Office for further details. Additionally, flyers listing necessary classes for the certificates are available outside the SMT Office in Building 7.
